Ecofeminisms consider that the oppression and domination of women and other vulnerable groups, as well as the exploitation and destruction of territories, have a common root: the patriarchal, colonialist and capitalist society. The journalist Antònia Folguera will interview the specialist Blanca Bayas to better understand this intersection of feminisms and environmentalisms, and the proposals they offer to face the current economic model, extractive of natural resources, time and women’s work.

Camins públics i comunitaris (Ecofeminist Proposals to Rethink Cities. Public and community roads).
